The article mentioned by Daniel Herriges, "Making Normal Neighborhoods Legal Again” http://bit.ly/2YuVn4b This reminds me of neighborhoods in Albany NY with rows of “two family houses” in which 1 in every block or two had a bar. Irish neighborhood. The bars weren’t marked and weren’t interested in growth. They were neighborhood pubs. I was never in one but I assume the pub took the two parlors or the first floor.
